Our exclusive trip to watch this year's Tour de Yorkshire over the May bank holiday weekend staying in Ilkley. Watch the pros and ride sections of the route as well as other great roads in the Yorkshire Dales
Watch video of our 2018 Tour de Yorkshire weekend
The 2019 Tour de Yorkshire will be bigger and better than ever before and it is likely that many of the world’s top riders will ride the race in preparation for the UCI World Championships in September 2019 in Yorkshire. This trip will allow you to ride some of the route that the pros will be racing on as well as watch the action right up close.
The weekend will comprise a mix of watching the Tour de Yorkshire and cycling some of the route as well as other great roads. On the rides there will be 2 ride groups heading in the same direction, with one group for intermediate/advanced riders and a second group covering less distance at a slower pace!
The race routes work perfectly for our weekend trip and will allow you to watch the race twice nearby where you will be staying in Ilkley.
Cycle out early afternoon to ride the categorised climb of the Cote de Lindley just ahead of the race and then watch the pros breeze past on Stage 2 of the race.

The race is using the same final stage as 2018 and have titled it the ‘Yorkshire Classic’ which takes in the spectacular climb of ‘Park Rash’. As per 2018 we will ride out to Park Rash and you can tackle the climb (if you want) ahead of the pros and experience the steep gradients for yourself! The sight of the peloton hitting the narrow steep slopes last year was a sight to behold as you see the riders come past you within touching distance.
Ride distance: 53 miles
Optional group dinner or chill out
Breakfast, early ride and departure
Gentle cafe ride in the morning prior to departure
